Bulldogs celebrated at banquet
Monday night was a time for celebration, a time for tears, a time for laughter and a time for reflection.
It was a night that has become an annual event for Mississippi State women's basketball fans and the team they followed. Monday's Hail State Hoops Banquet was another success for coach Vic Schaefer and his team as the Bulldogs honored the support staff and the fans after another record-setting year.
“People have told me that this was the greatest team in Mississippi State history,” Schaefer said.
The Mill hosted the event once again this year to a capacity crowd. MSU fans were treated to the awards banquet for the team, the final senior remarks from four outgoing players, Schaefer final thoughts on the team and a highlight video.
Jordan Danberry won the team's Academic Award after finishing the year with a 4.0 grade point average. Freshman Chloe Bibby was chosen the Rookie Award winner, Roshunda Johnson was Most Improved, Jazzmun Holmes was the Sixth Player of the Year, Blair Schaefer won Miss Hustle and shared the Miss Defense Award with Teaira McCowan.
Miss Offense was Victoria Vivians, who was selected last week eighth overall in the WNBA Draft to the Indiana Fever. Vivians also was Co-Most Outstanding Player with McCowan after the two finished the season first team All-Southeastern Conference and All-Americans.
The Tommy and Terri Nusz Most Outstanding Bulldog Award went to Morgan William, who was picked as the ultimate team player on the squad. Additionally, Schaefer awarded his annual Fan of the Year to Dr.
